Drew Smyly 'definitely' ready, Rays yet to decide on Friday start


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Smyly threw 70 pitches while racking up 3 2/3 scoreless innings in his most recent rehab outing Sunday as he continues his return from shoulder tendinitis. If the team decides he's not quite ready to return, Smyly would make one more rehab start before likely making his debut next week.

Cash added that there's a chance Smyly could rejoin the rotation by the end of April.

Colome threw a 40-pitch bullpen session Saturday and is set to throw 50 pitches Tuesday. Cobb played catch Monday for the second time and said all went well.
